With its gorgeous landscapes, cosmopolitan cities and lively culture, Argentina is a traveler’s paradise. Argentina is bordered by Chile to the west and south, Bolivia and Paraguay to the north, and Brazil and Uruguay to the northeast. It stretches almost 3500km from Bolivia to the tip of South America, encompasses a wide array of geography and climates, and is almost the size of India.
Nature-lovers can traverse the Patagonian steppe, climb South America’s highest peak, walk among thousands of penguins and witness the world’s most amazing waterfalls. Hikers can sample the stunning scenery of the lush Lake District – with its glorious lakes and white-tipped mountains – and revel in Patagonia’s glacier-carved landscapes and painted Andean deserts. City slickers will adore fabulous Buenos Aires, full of opportunities to learn Spanish, watch fútbol (soccer), dance the sexy tango and interact with dynamic and beautiful porteños (Buenos Aires locals). You’ll be out shopping for designer clothes at affordable prices and eating the world’s best steaks every day while partying at nightclubs all night long.
Expect to visit several newly renovated museums and buildings, such as the famous Teatro Colón which shut down popular tours for over two years during its facelift.
Argentina is safe, friendly and – compared to Europe or the US – very affordable. Now is a great time to visit, so get your spirit in gear and prepare for an unforgettable adventure!
